Peter Essex added: "Times change, certainly in 60 years. When I was a kid and taken to Regentsholme at Lydney by my Grampy in the early fifties, a local derby against Berry Hill was a regular fixture. No sign of it in the forthcoming season's fixtures. (In fact Lydney have home and away game with my now local team of Dorking.)"

Thanks also to Pete Meek.
